Our Lion Bulk Handling cyclone dust separators provide a method of removing dry bulk particles from air streams at low cost and low maintenance. In general, a cyclone consists of an upper cylindrical part referred to as the barrel and a lower conical part referred to as cone (see figure 1). The air stream enters tangentially at the top of the barrel and travels downward into the cone forming an outer vortex. The increasing air velocity in the outer vortex results in a centrifugal force on the particles separating them from the air stream. When the air reaches the bottom of the cone, an inner vortex is created reversing direction and exiting out the top as clean air while the particulates fall into the dust collector tank attached to the bottom of the cyclone.
In the dry material and bulk handling industry, 2D2D (Shepherd and Lapple, 1939) and 1D3D (Parnell and Davis, 1979) cyclone designs are the most commonly used abatement devices for particulate matter control. The D’s in the 2D2D designation refer to the barrel diameter of the cyclone. The numbers preceding the D’s relate to the length of the barrel and cone sections, respectively. A 2D2D cyclone has barrel and cone lengths of two times the barrel diameter, whereas the 1D3D cyclone has a barrel length equal to the barrel diameter and a cone length of three times the barrel diameter. Previous research indicated that, compared to other cyclone designs, 1D3D and 2D2D are the most efficient cyclone collectors for fine dust (particle diameters less than 100 µm).
Lion bulk handling is using this method for supplying and integrating cyclone dust collectors with our bulk handling systems.
